I attended this chat for the first 25 - 30 minutes and it kind of seemed worthless. The moderator asked people not to ask questions such as "What are my chances?" and guess what the first question was? "What are my chances?" followed by a not-so-brief description of himself. If people can't follow the rules in a simple chat, do they think they belong at MIT Sloan? Wake up people!

I then asked "Can you comment on the weight given to the GMAT score? I realize a good score is necessary, but once an applicant gets a score comparable to the published information, how important is that GMAT score then?"

The response was more bland than vanilla pudding. "The scores are important; however, there are other areas that we focus on throughout the application. The numbers are just 1 portion of the data we used to review the application."

That is not responsive to my question. It doesn't state anything as to the weight and consideration of a range of GMAT scores.

Oh well. It seems pointless to have these chats when very little information is actually conveyed. At least useful information.

Oh, that is disappointing, I thought Sloan would be much more matter of fact and honest. Was the chat with the admissions director?

schools tend to not give out much helpful info during these chats...they are overly cautious with info.

However, I do not do profile reviews, don't offer predictions on chances and am far to busy to review essays, so save the energy of writing me a PM seeking help for these. If I don't respond to a PM that is not one of the previously mentioned trash can destined messages, please don't take it personally I get so many messages I have a hard to responding to most. The more interesting, compelling, or humorous you message the more likely I am to respond.

you can't expect much more than that with regards to a GMAT inquiry

i wonder sometimes why schools do these chats. most of the applicants who sign on to these ask ridiculous questions. the few applicants who have done some research and ask thoughtful questions get canned answers that are straight from the website. the current students in these chats aren't any better either...they're sometimes more politically correct than the admissions folks themselves.
